The delegation will present a condolence letter from Osinbajo on behalf of the Federal Government to the governor, Willie Obiano.

In the letter, Osinbajo extended deep commiserations to the families, friends of the victims, and the community on the death of their sons and daughters, praying for the speedy recovery of the injured.

He quoted Osinbajo as condemning, in very strong terms, "the atrocious and dastardly act which had brought sorrow to many innocent families and, had rightly provoked widespread condemnation".

"Such barbaric act constitutes an affront to our common humanity and it challenges, but will not overwhelm our collective resolve to rid our communities of all forms of violent crimes and criminality", he said.

Osinbajo noted that the Federal Government under President Muhammadu Buhari remained undeterred and would continue to use all available resources to ensure adequate security of lives and property in Anambra and across the entire country.
